Bethany Garland The ACM Chicago Program was a deeply transformative experience for me. The Chicago Program staff is intelligent, highly experienced, creative and dedicated and they consistently go above and beyond to serve as teachers, mentors, and guides. I participated in the Urban Studies track, where I was introduced to a variety of people and perspectives that challenged and deepened my understanding of Chicago, and complimented my previous work as a social work major. During the semester I was also able to complete an internship at Lawyer’s Committee for Better Housing where I was allowed to work hands on with individuals going through the eviction process, and even to support clients in court. This internship gave me a level of professional confidence and competence that many of my peers have yet to have the opportunity to develop. Overall, the Chicago Program encouraged me to consider the city as a collection of voices and experiences, and gave me the confidence and insight to begin to understand what my story can mean within this larger context.

—Bethany Garland, Chicago Program (Urban Studies), Fall 2012
